Universities will not be allowed to provide vocational training courses, according to a revised circular of the Ministry of Education and Training.

On June 12, the Minister of Education and Training, Pham Vu Luan passed a revised Decision to amend Article 6 in the Circular No.57/2011/TT-BGDĐT which was approved on December 2, 2011, concerning enrolment targets for universities and colleges.

According to the decision, university enrolment targets will be prioritised on the basis of the highest level of education it provides.

Universities and colleges, except for art colleges will not be permitted to provide vocational training courses.

Institutions that aren’t mentioned in Clause 5 of this Article and providing vocational training courses have to gradually reduce the places it offers by at least 20% a year and end enrolment before 2017.

The circular will take effect from June 26, 2012.
